Wondzorg – LUMC

Improving healthcare by involving patients

Past experiences have shown that surgically placed prosthesis can present complications. A wound can lead to a wound leak, which can cause infections. LUMC approached us to see if an e-health solution could offer effective prevention tooling. Together we developed a two-part solution; an app that supports both patient care and research ends.

The app will guide patients during the wound healing by a daily questionnaire for a certain period of time. The answers to those questions will help the patient to judge whether recovery follows the normal course. Patients get better insights in when to contact a doctor and hospitals can collect data on post-operative wound infections.
